Surprising book from Wells. Excellent reading by Anthony Ogus. I really loved this story. Will listen to Mrs. Lewisham next. Thank you Mr. Ogus OOps - there's no Mrs. Lewisham - I got mixed up with Mrs. Biggs.
Wells' Love and Mr. Lewisham - probably new to many of us - is a really compelling and often humorous coming of age story. As the hero moves from his late teens into his mid-twenties his reflections on the meaning of life combine faulty logic and clumsy expression with startling wisdom.
The reader, Anthony Ogus, does a wonderful job of conveying the combination of sober truth and asinine humor flowing through this really good story.
